An atmospheric exploration of childhood worries, and how to overcome them -- Now in paperback!
Billy is a bit of a worrier. He worries about everything. Most of all he worries about staying at other people's houses ... But a visit to his grandma's shows him how to overcome his fears with the aid of his imagination (and some tiny worry dolls).
A touching, sensitive story about the resourcefulness of children and using the power of the imagination to combat irrational fears.
In 2000, Anthony Browne won the prestigious Hans Christian Andersen Award (for Illustration) for his services to children's literature.
